Lindows working on Web-authoring tool

Lindows, a software company whose offerings include a version of the open-source Linux operating system intended to appeal to nontechnical users, announced this week that it is developing an open-source Web-authoring tool. In a notice posted on the Lindows Web site, CEO Michael Robertson says the Nvu project is aimed at creating a collection of Web tools comparable to Microsoft's FrontPage and Macromedia's Dreamweaver.

Robertson said Nvu will use some of the code for Mozilla Composer, the authoring element of the open-source Web browser. He expects Nvu to be ready next year.
